These revolutionary mental health programs are brought to you by our 4BP Horses founder Joe Hughes.
Our equine therapy programs are like no other developed over a lifetime with horses and humans catering to all trauma based afflictions.
The first of its kind method to be funded in Australia by NSW Primary Health Network for suicide prevention, trauma, depression, PTSD, schizophrenia, epilepsy, body seizures, conflict resolution etc.
If you suffer from mental health issues and are seeking to reduce the effect of these issues on your life, then please take a look at our self-help program videos.
Some words from our founder below:
"When you are connected to the earth your heart beats slow , strong and confidently.
When you are not connected to the earth you are like a child seperated from their mother, the heart beats that bit faster with the soft panic of separation.
You are disconnected from your source of comfort, nurture, sustenance and hence that feeling of deep anxiety.
Remember MOTHER NATURE?
Or is it MOTHER NURTURE.
Get grounded with 4BP Horses.
Get your heart back in beat, restore your soul, start living a happy life.
"The people we surround ourselves with either raise or lower our standards.
They raise us up to be the best versions of ourselves or encourage us to become lesser versions of ourselves.
We quickly become the environment we indulge and feed.
No individual becomes great on their own.
We all need people in our lives who raise our standards, remind us of our essential purpose , care for us, inspire and most of all, make us laugh.
Take time out this weekend to indulge in that person or those people.
Throw your social media to the side and live life.
"No one human can shoulder all afflictions. However every human gets to experience some kind of affliction. Be it anxiety, abuse, schizophrenia, depression, body pain, separation, loss of a love one, battle with authorities, battle fatigue, divorce etc. Everyone gets to experience some type of adverse effect from our surrounding environment. A good community of humans will share their experiences , their triumphs and failures so that we all learn together, we all get to “feel “ the experience. Rather than segregate , isolate, ridicule and persecute the afflicted, the weak and the tired. Our creator made us to be a community, to raise our young to be part of that community, to watch out for one another, to provide for all, not some and to respect and tend to our elderly. Our elders are our past and our future. Please take some time to listen to a fellow humans story this week and enrich your life with theirs. Every journey starts with that first step, even if it’s a stumble, at least it’s movement in the right direction.

Message from Joe, our 4BP Horses founder:
When performing 4BP training, some of you will have experienced an intimate stage of connection, a feeling of innocent arousal will have been achieved.
The horse is the cause, so what combination of the emitting chemicals cause this or is there another chemical reaction altogether?
This is extremely interesting and has got me hooked, especially the Parkinson’s disease/treatment bit.
4BP’s development of trigger points on a horses face and controlled exposure to the activated horse, with a whole variety of afflictions (anxiety, PTSD, suicide, depression, schizophrenia, epilepsy) has delivered permanent relief of said such afflictions.
The following answers a lot of questions pertaining to clinics, linking of human to human, human to horse, empathy to one another in clinics and short “plug in” sessions. "When you're first becoming intimate, you're releasing lots of dopamine and oxytocin. That's creating that link between the neural systems that are processing your facial cues, your voice and the reward system" of a partner's brain, or horse.
Hugging, kissing, cuddling, can all trigger oxytocin production, which can strengthen bonds between adults, too.
These effects have led oxytocin to be grouped with the other happy hormones — hormones known to have a positive impact on mood and emotions.
Serotonin, dopamine, oxytocin, and endorphins are famously happy hormones that promote positive feelings like pleasure, happiness, and even love. Hormones and neurotransmitters are involved in lots of essential processes, like heart rate and digestion, but also your mood and feelings. Dopamine can provide an intense feeling of reward. Dopamine is most notably involved in helping us feel pleasure as part of the brain's reward system. Sex, shopping, 4BP, smelling cookies baking in the oven — all these things can trigger dopamine release, or a "dopamine rush."
Dopamine, oxytocin, serotonin, and endorphins, sometimes referred to as D.O.S.E. and involved in several bodily functions, these chemicals promote a sense of closeness, cheerfulness, self-esteem, and even love, making us bond emotionally and trust each other.
Studies show that they may be as effective as Parkinson's disease medications at boosting dopamine levels.
So when performing 4BP wellbeing treatment or programs, be conscious of your feelings, reactions, sensations, tinkling in your hands, stomach or pelvis…. It all means something.
When the horse is activated via 4BP facial points, it becomes a kind of giant radiator and if you stand in on the shoulder as directed, then you become soaked in the mentioned chemical reactions.
You become affected by all that the horse is enjoying ….100%
